Performing For You Tonight:

Fandango’s Friday Flashback —

I chose this for Flashback Friday because it’s Pre- Coronavirus but it was part of a writing Project I was working on called ” The Red Death .” based on Poe’s Masque of The Red Death.

Today seems like a good day to bring it out.

Here it goes:

If I were asked

to chose the music for a Ball

where Death and Terror

held sway over all

I would dig up a band

from unmarked graves

and I set them up

on a decrepit old stage

I would ask them to sing

loudly

and slightly off key

so that no one outside the ball room

would notice the screams.
